I have knowledge about birdwatching, I also know a little about marketing and sale. So, I want to tell you that I recently tried to set up a Tour Operator called "La ruta del abuelo", here in my comunity, I offered all inclusive packages and it is very funny. So, I think that I'm able to achieve it one day.
Guess what? My grand parents have cows so I have knowledge in milking cows, it's very exiting and this is very nice. I also know basic music theory it's interesting and I think that it helps children a lot.
Another thing that I like and that practice is photography, I love capturing moments. Recently I'm also learning more about my local language "The Kichwa" and I have to confess that it is more difficult than english.

Please describe your hobbies
I like planting plants in my vegetable plot and yes cultivate and harvest them too, so every morning I have fresh vegetables to eat. I like to travel, to meet new people and I would like to learn more languages, but now, only study english and kichwa. In my free times I like to go to my parent's house and spend my time with them, they have many animals, so I like to take care of them and feed them, sometime I also visit my uncles and my beautiful cousin, she is a 7 year old girl and she is very hyperactive, I play with she too, we watch movies and I like to comb her hair to go to church.
Yes, I enjoy my free time.
